Whether The Kangaroo Method Will Affect The Emotional Development Of The Mother?
good afternoon, I want to ask whether the kangaroo method will affect the emotional development of the mother?
Hello, Ms. Feronica Felicia Imbing. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Kangaroo care method (FMD) is a method of care for low birth weight babies (LBW) or premature born babies by making skin contact (skin-to-skin contact) directly between the baby and mother. Through this method, the mother's body temperature will warm the baby.
There are many benefits derived from implementing FMD. The most important benefit is that it is easy to give ASI so that it can increase the duration and frequency of breastfeeding. In particular, for infants, FMD is beneficial in reducing the number of newborns who die, preventing hypothermia / cold in LBW, stabilizing the baby, reducing the incidence of infection, and supporting the growth and development of infants. For mothers, besides facilitating breastfeeding, FMD is also beneficial for increasing emotional bonding between mother and baby. So, FMD can positively influence the emotional bond between mother and baby.
Do not hesitate to consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician regarding FMD. To enrich insight, you can read articles about kangaroo care methods. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
